FOX RUN CABIN - RARE FIND WITH A CREEK AND A VIEW! AND YOUR OWN PERSONAL WATERFALL ONLY ABOUT A HALF MILE HIKE UP THE MOUNTAIN CREEK! We knew we had found a treasure the first time we saw FOX RUN. We immediately fell in love with it's naturally peaceful ambiance. In fact, we loved it so much we decided to purchase the property and share it with others from all over the world.

The minute you pull into the driveway at Fox Run you will view it's comfortable setting nestled down in front of a gorgeous mountain view. As you step out of your car you will hear the sounds of the rushing creek that streches the entire length of the property boundary.

Upon entering the cabin you will immediately notice the fine natural cherry floors, pine wood construction and the sweet wood aroma that you would expect in a custom hand built mountain cabin. It is open, airy and spacious. It is truly a gem.

Fox Run is undoubtedly one of the most popular cabins available for guests who want to come and enjoy the wonders of the Great Smoky Mountains!

It's so peaceful... Shhh!!! We've been told that God lives there. We're pretty sure he does!

Just read what some of our past guests have written in our guest book:

'We have fallen in love with Fox Run, especially the rockers on the expansive porch late in the evening. And with the soft bed and open windows with the rush of the little creek at night. Thanks to our great hosts who went above and beyond to make sure our stay was pleasant. We return to this area about every 10 years but Fox Run has made us want to return much sooner, (Maybe 6 Months).

'Spectacular views! We are celebrating our 16 year anniversary. What a place to celebrate! Fox Run is Great! Thank You for sharing it with us. It's so cozy. We love the porch and the rocking chairs, looking at the mountains, dreaming. The noise factor is so great, especially at night when all you hear is the creek and the animals. The hot tub was so relaxing after a day of shopping and checking out the area and so much to do. Living in Frankln NC at one time in my life, this was like coming home for me and a great adventure for my husband, who is from Long Island NY. There is nothing to complain about here. You just relax and enjoy God's country and look with amazement at what he has created for us to enjoy.'

'My Husband and I are celebrating 22 years of marriage. This place, (Fox Run) has been magical. Among our most magical moments, I'll hit the highlights.

1. Hummingbirds at the feeder

2. At night a field full of Fire Flies. Incredible!

3. The wild flowers were awesome

4. The peach and apple trees, blueberries and black berries were abundant!

5. Babbling creek - (meditation time)

6. The View!

7. The wonderful porch. I have no porch so coffee in the morning in the rocker on the porch is magical for me.

8. Enjoyed the birds.

9. Hot Tub Heaven!

'This was our 3rd year staying at Fox Run. It's nice staying at a familiar place. As always, we enjoyed the peace and quiet. This year we skipped white water rafting. Instead we went tubing in the GSM park.What a great time! We would highly recommend spending a day tubing the river. We also went on the great GSM train to the Nantahala Gorge. It was nice and relaxing. Thank You for providing a lovely and pleasant place to stay!'

We had an amazing Christmas vacation in Bryson City. The cabin was awesome and so tranquil. The views from the cabin and waterfalls were breathtaking! I would highly recommend this home for a quite vacation however, I would like to point out that if the weather forecast calls for a lot of rain that you make sure the vehicle you are driving will make it across a small creek. It rained all day Sunday and most of Sunday night and I have to say I was a little more than worried about a mini van making it across the rushing water :-) but we made it!! The cabin was as advertised and the owners were so nice and prompt with answers to all of our questions. We rode the Polar Express in Bryson City which I highly recommend if you have small children!! Thanks for a wonderful Christmas vacation!!

Fox Run is truly a winner. The drive to the cabin itself was amazing...bunnies, horses, goats, and of course fabulous Smokey views. The property & walk to the waterfall top is worth a full day of exploring. Cabin is perfect for any pet owners as it is a beautiful "flat" yard for the dogs to go out on. Well maintained and clean. Will be recommending to friends & family. Our host Donnie was great. Immediately responsive to any email or call.
We travel to the area every year, and this is the first Cabin we can say..."we would like to stay here again".
Thanks Donnie!

Very difficult to drive to cabin but beautiful

Property was very clean and well maintained. Owner was helpful but a forewarning about the last stretch of the graveled steep road would have helped us plan the trip differently. We could not get to the property on our first night due to the snowy graveled road to reach the property, our vehicle was sliding back. We also watched another vehicle trying to climb the last 1/2 mile had the same issues like ours. Finally we had to rent another room in a nearby hotel, that caused us a lot of time and money as well as discomfort. The location is great in terms of privacy and remoteness but a bit too risky to get to it without help from local drivers. Our helper Ms. Angie was an angel, owner had provided her contact after we asked for help. Also, they charged us for the Hot Tub but it had snowed and so we could not go out to the hot tub since it is not attached to the cabin but a little farther out, this too was not mentioned beforehand. During winter months hot tub fee does not seem right as it is unusable. Overall nice place but has issues as mentioned above.
Owner's Response: We welcome the reviewers comments. We always welcome feedback from our guests. It helps us to understand what they liked or didn't like during their stay at Fox Run. Fox Run is visited by hundreds of travelers every year. Most of our guests are repeat guests and they simply love the property as do we. We agree with the reviewer that Fox Run is very clean thanks to the hard work and dedication of our cleaning staff. Angie works extremely hard to ensure that our guests always arrive to a spotlessly clean home. And she will go to any length to ensure our guests are comfortable. In fact, she told me she made about five trips to the cabin during the reviewer's visit to assist with various requests. Regarding the hot tub, we get countless positive comments about how nice it is to be able to relax in the warm water during winter months. The hot tub was installed on a deck which overlooks the rushing creek that borders the property. Most guests seem to enjoy the hot tub more in the winter than in the summer months. It is only about 25 feet from the front porch of the cabin. For this reason we keep the hot tub operational year round and always ensure that the water is treated, drained and refilled on a regular basis.

The funny thing about the mountains and mountain rental cabins is that the terrain is usually rather, well, mountainous! That's part of the attraction of the mountains. Most mountain rentals are in settings that require some up-hill and down-hill driving. The last very short leg up to Fox Run does have some inclines but we have never had anyone who could not make the trip up unless there was heavy snow. We maintain a gravel road on that last leg specifically to help travelers should it snow. Snow on a paved surface would be far more dangerous than on a gravel surface. Again, the majority of rental cabins in the area are accessed primarily on gravel roads.

When travelers read all of the wonderful reviews, on this site and others or in our guest book in the cabin, we hope they will quickly realize that Fox Run is a premium property with wonderful amenities. Moreover, we invite anyone looking for a wonderful mountain retreat to rest assured that Fox Run is very safe and you only have to visit once to instantly become a regular guest. It is situated about 3500' in elevation with breathtaking long-range views! There is a wonderful rushing creek and even your own personal 100' waterfall.


Come see for yourself!

Fox Run - Great stay...:)

We stayed at Fox Run cabin at the end of july - beginning of august 2013.
We loved it there. The kids had a great time around the cabin (walking/hiking,picking fresh fruits like berries, mountain appels etc.) and in the surrounding areas visiting the Fontana Dam, zip line, horseback riding, tubing, fishing, bear watch etc. Like i said we had a great time. Mornings are great when you stay on the patio and you watch the hummingbird show. It is great. What we liked about the cabin that it is very secluded and quiet. Nobody bothers you besides the animals and the birds :). Overall we had a great time. Hope you are gonna enjoy it. Have fun...

We have stayed in a lot of cabins in the area over the last 20 years, but next time we go the first place we will check on is Fox Run!
Everything was perfect and just like the other reviews stated, we hated to leave.
Donnie was an excellent host and took the time to guide me over the phone to the cabin since I neglected to get the directions before I left.
Most cabins have either view or water but Fox Run has both.
The waterfall was well worth the hike and a truly amazing spot!
If I ever hit the powerball, I will have to make Donnie an offer he can't refuse! Or maybe he still wouldn't give it up.
Thanks for sharing your cabin and we can't wait to return.

Great Quick Stop in the Mountains!

Our family of 6 had a great experience at Fox Run. We loved the 10-15 minute windy roads from the highway to the cabin. We felt like we were on an adventure especially with the last road and path crossing the creek to the cabin. I will let Toyota know that the Sienna does just fine off the beaten path!

The waterfall hike was well worth it. Amazing to have your own waterfall! The cabin was clean and everything worked great. This was our first stop on a two week roadtrip and was the perfect beginning. 30 minutes from the activities in Cherokee and the hot tub and outdoor scenery was a perfect way to relax afterwards. We wish we could've stayed longer!
Owner's Response: Hi Matt,

We're very happy to hear that you had a wonderful time! It is so gratifying to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay at our little cabin in the sky! We always tell our guests that the worst part of their stay will be the day they have to leave! It is truly one of our favorite places and obviously a favorite destination of our many visitors!

We do hope you will plan a return visit in the near future.

Best Personal Regards,

Donnie and Brenda Mohn
